Bernie Sanders didn’t answer a question about whether he would accept hundreds of millions of dollars in help from Michael Bloomberg if the Vermont senator becomes the Democratic nominee.
Sanders told CNN’s Anderson Cooper he doesn’t have a super PAC and hasn’t asked for one, but then ignored a question about whether he’d accept Bloomberg’s money.
Bernie Sanders on Tuesday night sought to fully divorce himself from supporters who have harassed others online and questioned whether anyone who believes in his agenda would attack a union leader.
Top officials at the Culinary Union in Nevada accused Sanders backers of swarming them online after flyers distributed by the union, which said Sanders would "end" their health care, went viral.
“I do not believe in online bullying," he said. "End of discussion.”
Sanders also questioned whether some of the social media comments cited by critics were, in fact, written by his supporters.
Pete Buttigieg said on Tuesday – for the first time – that he believes Attorney General Bill Barr should resign because of his handling of politically sensitive cases like that of longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone
“Absolutely,” Buttigieg said about Barr stepping down. “This really is an emergency, it's an emergency of legitimacy in our justice system. Our justice system only works if it is immune from the interference of politicians.
Pete Buttigieg excoriated Donald Trump and one of his most high-profile supporters for questioning his marriage to his husband, Chasten, on Tuesday, telling an audience in Las Vegas that his marriage “never involved me having to send hush money to a porn star.”
Buttigieg is referring to $130,000 in payments arranged by Trump's former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to Stephanie Clifford, a porn star known as Stormy Daniels who says she and Trump had an affair in 2006 after Trump married his wife Melania. Trump has denied having an affair with Daniels, but admitted in 2018 that he knew of the payments "later on."
Amy Klobuchar said she’s glad Michael Bloomberg will be on stage for the upcoming Democratic debate Wednesday night in Nevada.
“I actually thought he should be on the debate stage because I don’t think you should just be able to buy your way to the presidency,” she said.
Amy Klobuchar sought to explain her inability to name the president of Mexico in an interview last week by pointing to a long day of campaigning and Senate votes.
Klobuchar also looked to fire back at Pete Buttigieg on Tuesday after the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor used the misstep to question the Minnesota senator’s Washington experience.
“When that happened, for what it's worth, I had been in the Senate all day. We had six votes, including a resolution to be a check on the president,” Klobuchar said. “And I got on a plane and got there at midnight my time and had a fast interview and two forums after that, I think ending at about 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning. Such is life.”
